The 2021 Ski Rennet is going 100% virtual.
Based on current guidelines issued by the Minnesota Department of Health, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s in-person Ski Rennet. All registrants will be automatically moved to the virtual option and the difference in registration fees will be refunded. Emails were sent to registrants last Friday, Dec. 18, with full details.

The Virtual Ski Rennet will take place Jan. 9-17 on the trail of your choice. 10 percent of every race registration supports cross-country ski scholarships for youth in the Twin Cities. If you’re interested in taking part in this year’s Virtual Ski Rennet, there’s still time to register, just head on over https://www.threeriversparks.org/page/ski-rennet-race-day.

Based on the current guidelines issued by the Minnesota Department of Health, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Fat Bike Rennet. We are exploring options to create a stand-alone fat bike event later this winter as guidelines and scheduling allow. We will share more details as they are available.

Just finished checking the Allina Health Trail Mix course and things look good for all of you heading out this weekend! There are two signs missing, but the arrows are still in place - one is just beyond the cul-de-sac on Roy Rd. (forward arrow), the other is the last left-hand turn as you head down the hill to the start/finish area (left arrow). There are a few road apples on the trail, so watch your step and we did run into a feathered family of unregistered runners this morning 🦃.

Good luck to all of you "mixin' it up" this weekend!

Dear Allina Health Trail Mix Runner:
Thank you for your patience as we have evaluated multiple plans for the Allina Health Trail Mix Race over the last several weeks. The race will go on but in a re-imagined way!

Race Details
This year's Trail Mix will be self-directed and self-timed over a two-week period beginning July 11 and concluding July 26. You can race any day you choose, including before July 11, and submit your results during the two-week window. The course at Lake Rebecca Park Reserve will be fully marked for the duration of the event.

Your email will be shared with our race results partner, Mtec, so they can send you your custom link for recording your race time(s). Mtec only uses your email address for this purpose and will not sell your contact information to any third parties. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact [email protected].

Packet Pick-up
With the new format, there will be no packet pick-up, and race numbers are not required. All runners who submit finish times can choose either Gear West (Long Lake) or TC Running Company (Eden Prairie) to pick up finisher shirts, medals and other goodies starting July 27.
course information

The course is primarily an active equestrian trail consisting of mowed grass and dirt. We ask that you be conscientious of other trail users. We also ask that all runners follow the Minnesota Department of Health guidelines while you run and to practice social distancing while on the course.
Runners are responsible for providing their own water and nutrition, and we encourage friends and family to help support your race. The course is accessible near the South Group Camp on the south end of the course (approximately 5.6K) and via Roy Road on the western side of the course (approximately 9.7K). Restrooms are available in the main Lake Rebecca parking lot (near the start/finish).
The course will be fully marked July 11 through July 26 and will be checked regularly; however, we do advise all participants to print and carry the course map. The 12.5K is one lap, the TC Running Company 25K is two laps and the Gear West 50K is four laps.
Visit the Trail Mix Race web page for more details.

Refunds and Modificaitons
Three Rivers Park District will continue the policy of a full refund should you choose not to participate in the new event format. Additionally, if you would like to change distances, you can do so without penalty. The deadline to cancel your registration or change distances is July 9.
To cancel or make changes to your distance, please contact us at [email protected] or call 763.559.6700.

For specific race information, please contact the race director at [email protected].

Thank you for your patience as we worked through our plans in response to the developing COVID-19 situation. We were hopeful to find a way to keep Allina Health Trail Mix Race presented by The North Face as scheduled on April 18 but based on orders made and extended by Governor Walz yesterday, we have made the decision to postpone the race.

Save the date for Sunday, July 12 as the reschedule date for Trail Mix at Lake Rebecca Park Reserve. We are working through many details and will send updates as soon as we can. We know that many of you have spent countless hours training and are as disappointed as we are, but we are hopeful that you will be able to join us in July. In the meantime, our parks and trails remain open, so your training does not need to stop.

We will automatically carry your registration over to the new date. If you have questions or are unable to join us in July and need to cancel, please contact us at [email protected] or call 763.559.6700.

Take care and keep training!

We have made the difficult decision to cancel tonight's Pioneer Midwest 5K High School Rennet. Our staff has been closely monitoring the weather as well as school closures, early releases and canceled after school programming.

To ensure safety for all, we are following the lead of the 2020 High School Rennet host team, Minnetonka Public Schools, who have made the decision to close early today.

No alternate date will be set for the race this winter, but we are excited to see you back at Hyland for the 2021 High School Rennet. Teams who have not yet been invoiced will not be invoiced for this year's event. Teams and individuals who have paid will have their fees reimbursed.

We thank you for your understanding of this cancelation. The well-being of everyone involved in this event is a top priority for Three Rivers Park District, Minnetonka High School and our generous sponsors.

We wish you a wonderful season and hope to see you on the trails soon!

Race staff skied the 26K and 11K/5K ski courses this morning. Trails conditions are looking good and conditions have held steady all week on the natural snow trails. You’ll find some oak leaves and minor debris mostly on the east side of the Lake trail. Due to snow depth the classic track is shallow in places. Thank you to everyone for staying off of the natural snow trails this week. We are excited for race day tomorrow and look forward to seeing you at Hyland!

My never-ending quest to try new things has slowed, but was not halted, by C19. Today was my first cross country ski race- 5K obviously because #sprinter4lyfe! It was virtual at any time over a week, I got a totally gorgeous night. And what luck, all of the Rennet swag perfectly matches my ski ’fit 😁-thanks Three Rivers! I enjoyed it a lot! They are still taking registrations (there are longer events too), the 17th is the last day to race- AND if you ski in a Three Rivers Park, your bib acts as a pass for the day 👍🏽 . Good luck if you go! ⛷ #SkiRennet #SkiRennet2021 #classicski #crosscountryskirace Three Rivers Signature Races Elm Creek Park Reserve - Three Rivers Park District Three Rivers Park District
Our Autumn Woods Classic at Elm Creek this morning. Standing in front of the James Deane Parkway sign. Jim was our father and grandfather. Delighted to continue the Autumn Woods tradition in this most unusual year. #myautumnwoodsclassic
Perfect weather for this morning's 5K walk at Elm Creek! I followed the same route as in previous years, and even shaved another minute off my time – 1:02. Not bad for an old guy!
Photos up from the 22K freestyle and classic Rennet races.
any pictures or video updates from the 2018 race?
Will there be any MTB night races this fall?
Great race, great course. Thanks to the volunteers!
HEYYYY Trail runners. If you want to see your pic - they are posted on my page. I (think) Check them out!!!
